The Jim Henson Retrospectacle Live in Concert is a live concert that closed the three-week Jim Henson Retrospectacle in Wellington, New Zealand. The concert took place on April 27 and 28, 2018 at the Michael Fowler Centre (with two matinee and evening performances).

The concert was hosted by Bret McKenzie, backed by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. The show featured songs from various Muppet productions, both well-known and "a couple of rare deep cuts for the hardcore Muppet fans moshing at the front." The concert also featured Muppet characters from The Muppet Show, Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock. In between songs, archival footage (including old, Jim Henson-produced commercials and a scene from The Dark Crystal) was shown.

McKenzie co-wrote the concert with Craig Shemin. Chris Caswell served as music director.
